Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. The nursing score analyzes several factors, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded a grade of just D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Given its weak score in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, this facility did not perform very well here either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95.696724 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
